    Wow. That's even more common than Carter, Mary's last name.

    My Dad always said there are more Taylors than there are white people.

    Oh dear

    With only two people with both my names, it looks like I'm just about as popular as Rik. Perhaps the pair of us should just sit this one out, or go out into the garden and eat worms. Even if I use the popular version of my name, that still only give 5 people. Mind you, since I'm up here in Canada, that means there is at least one more in North America since I am not included in the statistiques. Right now I am trying to decide if I should be elated because I am so rare or depressed cause I'm so unpopular.

    The site indicates there are possibly 4 people in the US with my Dad's first name if any at all.

    His first name was Lum. Scot for chimney according to google search.

    Thanks, Gary

    That's interesting.

    There won't be anyone with a more popular first name.

    http://www.jamesalexander.de/NameData.png

    My last name is the 111th most popular. Almost 4,000 people with the same name as I have.

    I believe this. I got a (governmental) job in 1989 and when I started there, there were already TWO James Alexander's. One was my Father, but still I thought it was strange that someone else had my exact same name, in the same town, working at the same place!

    I didn't meet him until later when he told me that he got teased at work because they would announce awards that were given out and would mention HIS name, but then they would mention MY division. He always felt like they had given him an award in the first half of the sentence and had taken it away in the second half!

    Peace

    James
